In previous contests, the η-ter award used to be called Sustainability and Energy Efficiency for buildings and Resources (SEEER in Spanish). For this year, 2017, it was decided to change the name to η-ter, making it more reachable to other countries and languages.

The Greek letter η is used to measure the thermal transmission among materials and other applications, therefore it was selected as the most appropriate to represent the intention of this award.
